I fail to understand this earning onto a cup team. Players earn prize money, wins that allow them to continue to play, rankings get them into the FedEx Cup playoffs. That is what they "earn". In some ways this is no different than other team sports. We have all seen players that rack up points during the season and then just disappear in the playoffs; while others just seem to excel in those pressure situations. For cup teams there should be no entitlement. It is all about putting together the best mix of players for the course.
Royal Melbourne was the perfect course for Tiger. My goodness did he literally tear that place apart. While it is impossible, if you could put together a team with Tiger's course management, ball striking, putting, and clutch play, you would jump on it. If that left off some higher ranked multi-millionaires, so what.
Right, me neither. I was referring to @Papa Steve 55 saying he heard something like that. I saw the immediate post match interview, not sure what he’s referring to.
Well what did he say that made you think that?
I just watched the end on my dvr. I didn’t hear anything at all like that. A couple of times he mentioned how “I love these guys,” and I didn’t hear anything the selection process. He did say that they didn’t get the results they wanted, but he was talking about winning the Cup, not about who was playing.
Unless there was another interview, and we’re watching different interviews.
